Could someone explain again why with shows like Password Plus and Super Password, shows they own, shows whose whole runs were converted by GSN, they can't just run these show straight from the first episode to the end, without the constant minicycles and having around 30 "fresh" episodes of them a year. Thanks!

This is a somewhat fair question. As mentioned, though, some are already outdated. Also, GSN still owns that physical media. They may not own the rights, but they are under no obligation to give that media to Buzzr. Buzzr would have to pay them for it.

I just hope nobody out there was too excited about Classic Concentration 90 in the 11am hour. They're showing the four most recent episodes, rolling back to 1988 shows on 8/3.

Buzzr is promoting some Password (marathon?  Fresh episodes?) For August 8th...no doubt due to the new version on NBC starting the night prior.

The SM post says 6pm EST, so its apparently a scheduling stunt of some kind. Curious that it comes merely a week after this new schedule rolls out, though.

And, is that an ABC Password ep I see in that promo?

Yep. Looks like the Brett Somers-Jack Klugman episode GSN aired years ago. Cool!

And a very cute angle on some of the choices -- shows with Marc Summers and Brett Somers to mark summer.

And on another note, I also see Bill Cullen-hosted PW+! 

(Most of us have seen all of the above, but still neat for those who haven't)

Gasp! I wonder if this means they'll be playing more than just the Somers/Klugman episode of ABC Password (I know a few episodes exist in the UCLA archive)? Not holding my breath, but hey...a man can dream, right?

If memory serves me right, the Showoffs aired during last years Lost & Fun came from UCLA and there was a small black screen thanking them at the end. I'm not giving up hope but this might be a good precedent to have been set.

Huh.  Why did 8/7 sound like the date?

New schedule or not, Buzzr is still starting their morning programming around 3 minutes early; for example, Whew! actually starts around 8:27am, not 8:30am. It's the old saying, the more things change, the more they remain the same.

You can get excited now. CC's 11AM and 11:30AM airings are fresh as of 8/8, starting with 2/1/90. (These shows repeat the following midnight in case you missed them.)
